company based in dallas, texas. we are going to make faith and amily films. e are going to go out and make aith and family films and give you, the american public, the tools to go out and change the culture. to bring people in and reaffirm their values to show the truth. for 1900 years, the greatest creators of art were people in and around the church. the great music, the great sculptors, the great painters, all visual arts as well as musical arts were all in and around the church. but in the last 100 years, the worst art has been coming out of the church. you want to see films, you see the inferior production to see something that reaffirms your values. as i do my job now, i say to you, can't we make god beautiful? why can't we tell the truth, the good, and the beautiful in a way that is compelling and ntertaining and inspiring? that is my mission. i'm going to stay involved and be involved in politics to shape this debate. if we are going to be successful, as a party and more importantly in this country, we need to have a revitalized culture. we need to engage in it. that is where you c
open which is very important. >> good friend of senator harken there of course. the texas senator ted cruz, this was his second trip to iowa in a month. he's scheduled to return again in the fall. he's going to be speaking at the iowa republican party's fall fund-raising dinner. is he tipping his hat to real political ambitions or just sort of raising his name recognition and bringing in more dollars? >> it's probably both. as i mentioned for joe biden, getting your na inting your nam spotlight, ted cruz has been doing that and more. he's going to go to new hampshire. he is all over the place. but i will repeat, again, it is very, very early. at this point in the 2008 cycle. august of 2005, hillary clinton was the clear front-runner. you had george al len was the co-front-runner on the republican side. so it is very early with still more than three years to go, peter. >> i want to get a sense, do you think it's very early with -- just kidding. let me ask you about -- acknowledging iing it's early, with me here. he made some headlines speaking out basically, you know, sort of attacking
, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch totalling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he said u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off a steam with a couple of bogeys or a beer in the clubhouse keeps him sharper when the red phone rings, we're all better off for it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, michael, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, a big victory for justice and civil rights. today a federal judge ruled that new york's stop a

in manhattan, this has bipartisan support. states like arkansas and texas have already imposed their own policies to lower prisoners. >> thank you. >>> and president obama is taking a break from washington this week. he's spending time with his family on martha's vineyard, but va t the vacation comes as the economy nosedives. >> the president has done so less than his pred sez or george w. bush. 14 trips and 19 days. one kmon thread mr. obama's beginning to experience some second term blues. the president stepped onto the island paradise confronting some of the diceiest poll numbers of his presidency. it's only one poll but gallop constantly tracks presidential approval. mr. obama's is at 42% with 50% of the country disapproving. his approval rating was 41% last week, a low not seen since december of 201. when the president's approval rating dips this low, it's usually due to defections among democrats. surveillance have unsettled the president's place. republicans accuse him of ducking the issue for weeks. >> when the story initially broke, the president went un
and unscripted pose. he was caught on camera in a dallas, texas, classroom. that's the phenomenon that became as dufnering. his pga tour buddies, and i use that term loosely, taking full advantage by tweeting and retweeting pictures of the unfortunate post. i'm wondering, are we now going to be seeing a whole lot more of this dufnering? >> maybe. i don't know. i have only done it -- that's the only time i have done it. actually i did it once with lindsey vonn because she asked me, but, you know, they caught me in a moment of relaxation i guess and then the guys all out here tried to give me a good ribbing on it and get me in trouble and all this stuff. but i kind of ran with it and it turned out to be a good thing and a lot of people have taken to it so maybe i will give them a special treat later this week when i get home with the trophy. >> reporter: come on, jason, give us some more dufnering. we love it. this is a player that rarely smiles, but at 36 years of age, he really needs to. most players have majors in the bag by this point if they're going to go on and actually win a major. he's
